“We are very excited to offer this exclusive opportunity to Advocacy Days registrants this year,” said Ashley Burch, director of political programs. “Amy has decades of experience training advocates on how to influence, and build long-lasting relationships with, their legislators. With Amy’s guidance, we are confident Advocacy Days attendees will feel better prepared for their meetings on Capitol Hill, ultimately maximizing their impact during their time in town, and better equipped to maintain that momentum even after they have returned home.”
Advocacy Days begins on June 17 with a legislative issues briefing by IDFA’s subject matter experts and concludes on June 18 with the 33rd Annual Capitol Hill Ice Cream Party.
